RED Juan Reviews R1’s Q3 performance

 

Tubao, La Union – DENR 1.          The Regional Executive Director (RED) Reynulfo A. Juan welcomed all the participants as he urged them to always “better your best” by actively taking charge and leading their respective offices to perform better in the remaining months of 2018 during the Regional Management Conference. He expressed his appreciation to the hard-work and dedication of the employees for doing the job as expected but should not be too complacent though, as the year comes to close.

 

RED Juan gave an update on what he has been doing for the DENR in this part of the country worth mentioning is his visit to the different National Greening Program (NGP) sites in La Union and in Ilocos Sur even at the height of the typhoon. He also shared his experience during his visit to Coquimbo, Chile, where he represented the DENR during the conduct of the ‘Exchange of Experience to Add Value to Organic Wastes from Small-scale Fisheries and Aquaculture through its reuse and Conversion into Innovative Products, which contribute to enhanced food security.’ He shared his learning on the best practices he observed during the international visit which was also participated by representatives from other countries. RED Juan also underscored the message of DOT Sec. Puyat during the opening of the (new) Boracay Island saying that the “rehabilitation does not stop in Boracay, this effort will continue entire the country” including Ilocos Region.

 

The Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Officers (PENROs) presented the status of their performance in terms of the NGP programs with some concerns on the maintenance of the plantation sites during the rainy season and summer. The RED recommends to the heads of the field offices to report the actual situation to back them up from any liability if it is caused by natural calamities. It is reminded that they should visit at least 5 NGP sites, know the status and ‘take ownership’ of their jurisdiction.

 

As the head of office, RED Juan felt sad by the wrath of the 2 typhoons which left its rage in the northern part of the Luzon leaving numerous casualties in Regions 2 and CAR. Thus, he expressed his concern on the safety of all personnel by reminding the need to be ready and inspect the office building every now and then, check for some oddities in the area to avoid any tragic event citing what happened with the DPWH building in Natoni, Mountain Province.

 

During the 1st Day of the Management Conference, the Regional Management also recognized the collaboration efforts of the Philippine National Police as partners in the enforcement of environmental laws.

 

Ecosystems Research and Development Bureau (ERDB) Division Chief, Ms. Aida Lapis presented their findings and recommendation on bamboo propagation related to the Green Livelihood program of here in Region 1. Their findings will enhance the propagation of bamboo specie in the region as well as its economic dimension towards a sustainable development. They have recommended the need of continuous information, education and communication drive including consistency of extension service and to strengthen the collaboration with partner agencies on the added value of bamboo.

 

 

Over-all, DENR 1 maintains its rank as a performing field office in the implementation of its mandate to protect and conserve the environment in the countryside. The RED urged the regional officials to innovate and be creative in the implementation of the programs and projects most importantly in the effective and efficient utilization of funds. This also includes the intervention of the agency to the different ENR projects of the congressional district representatives in Ilocos Region. It’s line bureaus Environmental Management Bureau and Mines and Geosciences likewise presented their accomplishments.

 

With RED’s Juan’s dynamism, it is hoped that the frontline crew of the DENR become resilient and could adapt to the enthusiasm of the RED in implementing the mandate of the agency.

 

Finally, RED Juan quipped “let us walk the extra mile and think out of the box in serving the public,” as he closes the Management Conference. (RAS-RPAO)
